If you want to have dynamic images on your website, the machine in which you host it ought to have the appropriate software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be installed on a server and that work with a great number of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you can use images with any web-based application you want, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
